An Answer To The Question We All Have This Week

So if you are tuning into my blogs on or have watched this weeks YouTube Top 10 Video then you will likely know the #1 selling item on eBay was a Rowing Merit Badge. Huh!? Yes a Rowing Merit Badge sold for over $1k on eBay last week with lots of bids. I put this out as a question in the Hot Finds and got a quick response from none other than Kirk Doan. Here is a link to the auction and read on to see the explanation.

1920-30’s Type A Square Border Merit Badge-Rowing- With Award Card

Rowing (and archery) though common now were added to the merit badge program just two years before they switched over to the wide crimp format, so few were issued in the full square format. That is why the bids are so high.
